Still truckin'...

So I've been keeping up with the routine I began last week.

Before breakfast I am currently up to:

30 standard pushups
25 regular crunches
15 reverse crunches
walk in place while brushing teeth

Varies during lunch (squats, toe lifts, cherrypickers, butterflies, overhead claps, and a variety of stretches).

M/W/F is walk/jog or other cardio, depending on weather. I started out last week with a fast walk and timed in at 17 minutes 50 seconds. Next outing was walking fast for a count of 50 and then jogging for a count of 15, and timed in at 16 minutes 20 seconds. Next time did the same walk/jog and came in at 16 minutes.

Today I started out jogging lightly and mostly jogged. There were a couple of times where I had to slow to a fast walk and then picked back up with the jogging (note: I am not experiencing any pain or discomfort in any joints or muscles, none in my feet, and no cramps or side stiches - the main reason I have to take a break is for breathing - I developed exercise-induced asthma about 9 years ago and am slowly reclaiming my lungs). Came in at 15 minutes 50 seconds.

That means that in just over a week I have shaved two whole minutes off my time!!! It's still not an outstanding time, but I am encouraged by the improvement.

I can't recall because you're usually talking about distance and not mileage, and I'm too lazy to go back and check ... do you walk on the treadmill or jog or run or what?
